What is Nutritious Food Seaweed?
NFS requires the quality of certified seaweed in a product to be transparent to consumers, with access to its nutritional profile. The total composition of NFS certified seaweed is monitored and must meet minimum and maximum criteria both for the good stuff (nutrients) and the bad stuff (contaminants), compliant with the most stringent international food safety standards. NFS is more than a quality standard, enabling the sustainable production of world class seaweed for human consumption which gives seaweed producers access to new markets at home and abroad. Rooted in the principles of biodynamic, organic and sustainable farming, with aspects of marine science, botany, nutrition and conservation, NFS has been administered by the Seaweed Health Foundation together with the Biodynamic Association since inception in 2014.

What it does
Pelvetia also has an unusual composition. Omega fatty acids are 3 times higher than our other native species, with an ideal ratio that’s good brain food; low in iodine so it’s ideal even for children; an effective prebiotic ideal for digestion; and rich in antioxidants for intestinal cleansing and blood circulation. With comprehensive minerals and trace elements and a little of every nutrient group, it fills all the gaps in a daily diet.

How to use
In almost any food, from breakfast muesli to a stir fry, pasta topping to vegetable salad, Pelvetia has a mild flavour so these pieces can be eaten as they are, slightly chewy, or left in cold water for a few minutes to soften. Half a jar (25 grams) can be left for an hour in a litre jug of cold water, with squeezed quartered lemon, grated ginger roots and 4 teaspoons or T-bags of green tea, then strained out into a new jug to drink or keep in a frig for up to 3 weeks – a deliciously clean, very high antioxidant drink with a serious nutrient profile! It can be sweetened if required with a little pure apple or grape juice.
